According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Kirsten Gillibrand is currently sitting at a miserable 0.8 percent.
How is the New York senator explaining her awful polling? With accusations of sexism, of course.
Kirsten Gillibrand Blames ‘Gender Bias’ for Low Polling Ahead of 2020
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) claimed she is being underestimated in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president and blamed “gender bias” for the many problems she faces, such as low polling.
In the CNN profile, which highlights how she is “campaigning by living her best life,” Gillibrand let out a “hearty ‘yeah’” when asked whether she believed people were underestimating her efforts in the race.
“I think it’s just gender bias. I think people are generally biased against women. I think also biased against young women,” Gillibrand said. “There’s just bias and it’s real and it exists, but you have to overcome it.”
Gillibrand also stated that voters will “give a woman a shot” and insisted that that opportunity is needed.
“Voters will give a woman a shot. They just have to get to know her,” the low-polling presidential hopeful stated. “They might make a judgment without knowing her, but once they meet her and know who she is and why she’s running, it will give her that opportunity.”

Is it possible that few Americans believe that Sen. Gillibrand has what it takes to serve as POTUS?

It’s always someone else’s fault.

So she is accusing the Democrat party of being anti-woman? Did they get tired of being anti-Jewish?

3, 2, 1…and cue the misogyny victim card…God this is getting so tired and old. Give me a break lady; you are a phony who will say anything to get elected. That’s why no one likes you. (Hmmm sounds a lot like Hillary, doesn’t it?)
